More things making sense in trench one

Today we enlisted all of the students at the castle in moving hundreds of kilos of dirt off of the tarps in trench one. This northern section of the trench hadn’t been uncovered in years so had accumulated much growth.


Mattocks?! In trench one?!

We believe that we have identified the relationship between at least two post-pit which fit into a general pattern of such features in the wider trench. One area that has been causing much confusion is a join between a construction cut and a robber trench. Here we were hoping to identify a stratigraphic relationship between the two, but it now seems someone dug a stone filled post-pit right through the two features. Frustrating but at least we now know.


You can see the two trenches end in a pit.
